Located in Mekong Delta, on the right bank of Hau River, Can Tho is one of the five cities under the Central Government of Vietnam. Can Tho was known as “Tay Do” (capital of the West) a long time ago. It is famous for sites like Ninh Kieu wharf, Can Tho bridge (the largest and longest bridge in Vietnam)…

One of its geographical feature is to be an important transport hub between provinces in Mekong Delta region. In addition, Can Tho is considered as “an urban of river region”. The system of rivers is interlaced. Ochards and fields are large. Isles such as Tan Loc, Con Son, Con Khuong , Con Au,… on Hau river are very unique to develop river tourism.

First, tourists visiting Ninh Kieu Park can find a variety of precious ornamental plants and beautiful flowers from Cai Khe canal to the ancient market that has just been restored. Ninh Kieu wharf is the intersection of Hau and Can Tho rivers. After bobbing on the meandering river with crowded canoes, tourists visit Cai Rang floating market, which is a river trading market with a feature of the Southern culture.

In the early morning, hundreds of boats gather into a market on the river. The market sells all kinds of horticultural products that are hung on a pole in front of the boat called “cây bẹo”. Buyers only need to look at “cây bẹo” to know what the boat sells. In addition to visiting, buying fresh products, visitors also have the opportunity to talk closely with people who are called “dân thương hồ” (people whose daily life takes place on the rivers). All year round, they take the water, rivers, lakes as their companions. Next, visitors crept along the canals in green isles of Can Tho such as Con Khuong, Con Au…

In Can Tho, in the last 2 years, Sau Hoai eco-tourism garden has emerged as an example for this type of tourism. Coming here, visitors can enjoy the fresh countryside atmosphere, visit the orchard, learn about the profession of making “hủ tíu” (a kind of noodle) and enjoy quite strange dishes made from it.
